Since 2015, the University of Melbourne has provided a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) for the studies undertaken toward a course.

The WAM provides an indication of overall academic performance in each course that you study, and reflects the numeric mark (e.g. 45%, 87%) you obtain for each subject, as well as the size of each subject. A 25 point subject will count twice as heavily toward then WAM than a 12.5 point subject. Find out more on how the WAM is calculated. The WAM is calculated progressively as you complete your degree.
